The entire press release is in Korean, but a quick run through Google’s magical translation machine leaves us with words such as “premium” and “sophisticated” along with the following specs:

  • Intel Atom CPU (no word on the actual model, though)
  • 10.1-inch LCD (assuming the resolution will be 1024×600)
  • Weighs 2.72 pounds with standard battery

No word on price or an exact availability date but it’ll apparently be released next month in Asia, Western and Eastern Europe, and North America followed by a worldwide release sometime in the future.
